The study was conducted to estimate the prevalence of clinical conditions in dogs and cats admitted at Teaching Veterinary Hospital (TVH) in Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (CVASU) during the period of January to December 2012. A total of 424 clinical cases, 324 (76.42%) dogs and 100 (23.58%) cats were observed with different clinical conditions. These conditions were primarily categorized as medicinal cases, surgical cases and vaccination and health check up. Medicinal cases occupied highest number in dogs 167 (51.54%) and cats 54 (54%) followed by surgical cases 77(23.76%) in dogs and 29 (29%) in cats and vaccination and health check up 80 (24.69%) in dogs and 17(17%) in cats. Among of the medicinal cases parasitic diseases occupied highest prevalence 51 (15.74%) in dogs. Prevalence of clinical conditions was analyzed on the basis of age, sex, breed and season. Prevalence of ectoparasitic and infectious diseases in dogs was higher in winter with significant P-value (P ≤ 0.05). Prevalence of clinical conditions in response to age, sex and breed were not significant (P > 0.05). Keeping in view these findings, an appropriate control strategy could be designed and applied, which helps to prevent of these disease conditions in study area.
